A DEDICATION TO ATHENE, by            
First Line: Satyre, heracleia, euphro, three
Last Line: Poorly and long thy servants, are their gift.
Alternate Author Name(s): Archias


SATYRE, Heracleia, Euphro, three
Samians, to Xouthos born and Melite:
One brings a rod and distaff long with her,
Swift servant of the threaded gossamer;
The next her comb, whose murmuring ministerings
Make raiment rich; the last a wool-tray brings.
These tools Athene queen, by which have lived
Poorly and long thy servants, are their gift.
